Lillibrooke Manor wedding – Vicky & Charlie’s elegant countryside wedding
Lillibrooke Manor wedding – Vicky & Charlie’s elegant and rustic wedding in the countryside, with hand baked treats!
Vicky and Charlie’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous, from the fabulous countryside setting and rustic furniture decorations to fun guest interactions with “Wedding TV” provided by Vicky’s uncle (with help from the junior bridesmaids!). Vicky really has an awesome sense of style, and it shows! I met Vicky in the morning, getting ready with her adult and junior bridesmaids, who joked and had fun all morning. Vicky’s choices for hair and makeup were very elegant, and my very talented friend (and own wedding HMUA!) Victoria Percival created a beautiful, almost film star look. I worked with amazing videographer Irene Piera all day, and we both loved shooting Vicky and Charlie in their couples sessions because they were both so laid back and easygoing, and I totally fell a little bit in love with photographing Vicky’s veil.
Vicky and Charlie chose the small barn for their Lillibrooke Manor wedding ceremony, full of readings, music and laughter. Guests enjoyed Pimms and shots (excellent cocktail hour idea!) before the couple emerged for confetti in style! The grounds of Lillibrooke Manor are stunning, so we were able to wander driveways, hang out in wild gardens and go for a sunset stroll for some beautiful couple pictures. Vicky had also decorated the interior of the engine house with rustic furniture, and funky props for an almost antique shop like setting – she also baked all the favours herself.
I had loads of fun at Vicky and Charlie’s wedding all day, but my absolute favourite moment (most definitely up there un my top five greatest Best Man speeches ever) was everyone’s reaction to the Best Man’s boyband themed music video speech, filmed with all the groomsmen. Elements of Busted, Westlife, Backstreet Boys…..amazing!
Thanks so much Vicky and Charlie for having me shoot your super elegant and stylish Lillibrooke Manor wedding, also featured over on the English Wedding blog!
